After more than 100 million votes had been cast, the New7Wonders were officially declared on 07.07.07 in Lisbon, Portugal. They were announced in geographical order:

- The Great Wall - The Taj Mahal - Petra - The Colosseum - Chichen Itza - Cristo Redentor - Machu Picchu

The canon of 7 was expanded by the election of the New 7 Wonders of Nature in 2011 and the New7Wonders Cities in 2014, with the casting of an additional 550 million votes.

"New7Wonders has so far generated more than US$5 billion worth of economic, tourism and national promotional value for locations participating in its campaigns," says Jean-Paul de la Fuente, Director of New7Wonders. In the ten years since 07.07.07, people's lives around the world continue to be directly enriched, he says: "This is a major, global-scale proof of a concept based on mass virtual online dynamics creating concrete economic outcomes."

To honour 7 Wonders Day, a set of posters and videos portraying the Wonders has been made available to download at 7wondersday.com [http://7wondersday.com ]
